Clive Owen & Juliette Binoche Find Love in 'Words & Pictures' Trailer
It's been awhile since Clive Owen had a big film, but the British actor has kept busy with some lower profile dramas that have hit the festival circuit over the years. In fact, at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, Owen could be seen in both Blood Ties (watch the trailer) and the upbeat romance Words & Pictures. Now the first trailer for the latter film has arrived, showing the former James Bond candidate falling for a feisty painter played by Juliette Binoche. Both seem to be playing American in this one, so that's somewhat interesting, but this looks like your average indie romantic comedy. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Fred Schepisi's Words & Pictures from Yahoo:
Prep school English teacher Jack Marcus (Clive Owen) laments his students' obsession with social media and good grades — as opposed to rigorous engagement with language. A one-time literary star, Jack has not published in years. In short, Jack has much to despair of, and when Jack despairs, Jack drinks. Meanwhile, Dina Delsanto (Juliette Binoche) is an abstract painter. Like Jack, she was once celebrated for her art, but the onset of arthritis changed that. Jack finds Dina attractive but icy, and their differences might spark an unlikely romance. Roadside Attractions releases Words and Pictures from director Fred Schepisi (Fierce Creatures) and writer Gerald Di Pego (The Forgotten, Message in a Bottle) in limited theaters May 23rd.
